More Fun With Alcohol Inks

I thought I would share the painting I did when I took a class from a member of our Art Group here in my community.
 
I am becoming obsessed with this medium!
 
The inks are by two manufacturers...Ranger Alcohol Inks...Tim Holtz
 and Piñata brand.
 
This painting was done on Yupo Paper, which is a kind of plastic paper. It's non-porous, which works great with alcohol inks.
 
I love the fact that I can use the inks in my card making as well. I am offering a class in my community to card makers, using techniques associated with the craft.
 
I learned so much in the class I took...more art than artsy.
 
We used toothpicks, cotton swabs, cardboard, felt, paintbrushes...to move the ink around.
 
The tiny dots are created by spritzing alcohol onto the inks.
 
So cool!
 
I am entering this project into the following challenges
Open Minded Crafting Fun - New Toy or Technique (alcohol ink on Yupo)
Anything But a Card Challenge #31 - Balance (my painting has balance and unity)
Challenges 4 Everybody #37 - Anything Goes


Try something new this new year...and have some FUN!

  10. I am becoming a fan of the gorgeous artworks some are making with alcohol inks. Your work is inspiring me and prompting me to have a go. I feel it may become quite addictive! Love this technique... also loved the card you did on vellum. Thank you for playing at Anything But A Card. Cheers, Di.
